Centre for the Practice and Study of Tibetan Buddhism

Kagyu Kunkhyab Chuling (KKC) is a Tibetan Buddhist Centre under the guidance of H.E. Kalu Rinpoche, lineage holder of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition.

Kagyu Kunkhyab Chuling is the first dharma centre established in the West by Khyabje Kalu Rinpoche. Located in Burnaby BC, Canada, KKC offers a place for spiritual practice and study in the Karma Kagyu and Shangpa Kagyu Vajrayana tradition. We offer weekly prayer and meditation sessions, classes such as Tibetan language and Torma making. We also offer special programs, classes and retreats throughout the year.

"Please note that there will be no Shamata Meditation on Sunday, November 19. We will resume our regular schedule on Sunday, November 26th."
